NEW YORK (AP) — Stock futures are falling sharply as the U.S. government heads into the second week of a partial shutdown with no signs of a budget agreement in sight.
Dow Jones industrial futures are down 125 points to 14,873. S&P futures have lost 15.3 points to 1,669.50. Nasdaq futures are down 25.5 points to 3,209.
The Dow Jones gave up more than a percentage point last week and with the shutdown trimming an estimated 0.2 percent from gross domestic product every week, Washington will be watching Wall Street closely Monday.
